Fresh Salt Reviews List

Fresh Salt

Our tables overlook the waters of the Connecticut River where the fresh river meets the salt of the sound. It’s a treasured and historic spot. In nature the most vibrant life happens where systems meet. These places are rich in life, and our restaurant reflects that lively diversity. We have a raw bar, a seasonally varied menu, and offer as much as we can from the farms, brewers, cheese makes and other food enterprises that are springing up around our region.

Fresh Salt delivers a dining experience that’s comfortable and relaxed. Our staff is here to be of service to you, our kitchen stands ready with fresh ingredients, a deep wine cellar and carefully crafted fusions of foods and beverages that bring tastes together in delicious and new ways.

We have tables by the fire, at the bar, and in season offer seating outdoors on the Fresh Salt Terrace.

"Dinner with friends on a Saturday night for the first time at Fresh Salt. The location is great. If the weather had been better, would have opted to sit outside. Inside the bar and dining area is cramped, especially with a Saturday night crowd. Our table was right outside the bar area and it was really quite noisy. Very difficult to carry on a normal conversation. Service was attentive but we were not hurried at all which was greatly appreciated. Great conversation is just as important as great food for an enjoyable experience. While the noisy environment made conversation challenging, our server did not did not hover and urged us to take our time. Most at our table enjoyed their appetizer but I found my duck taco quite dry. Our entres were good but not anything special. Everyone really enjoyed their desserts and specialty cappuccinos. The apple crisp was great."

"The food wasn't as great as I expected. The lobster wontons app was so good as well as Siracha calamari but the actual dinner food wasn't as good as I thought for the price. I have had better meals."

"We went here for Sunday brunch. The views are beautiful, as the restaurant sits on the water. However, we cannot justify $40 a plate for a buffet brunch. The brunch selections were fair, at best. A few tables of assorted items, dessert section left something to be desired. Lack of choices. You had to travel through the dining room, through the bar area, down a hallway and through a set of double doors in order to reach the brunch selections. We found that constant walking with full plates unacceptable, as the floor was wet and there were people hanging around the bar area. This setup where there is a constant flow of children and adults walking back and forth with full plates through crowded areas is inconvenient, dangerous and just unacceptable, especially for the price of $40 a plate. We gathered that the $40 a plate was to either pay this restaurant's mortgage or pay for the scenery. The food itself was lukewarm and could be found at any other lower-cost restaurant offering brunch. As mentioned above, there was definitely a lack of available food choices. Would NOT recommend this restaurant for the brunch, based on food, price and the location of the tables to the brunch area itself.
Management should really take into consideration where this brunch is located in proximity to the tables, as this is an accident waiting to happen.

"Both my husband and I requested modifications to our orders, and the chef was very accommodating. The food was outstanding! The servers were also great, and willing to please."

"We enjoyed a terrific supper on Friday, November 18th. The bar and restaurant was busy, but not crowded. The wine list offered strong American, Italian and French choices at all price points. Brilliant oyster selection and lovely main courses. I thoroughly enjoyed the pork osso bucco, my table mates equally enjoyed their fish stews. A lovely pear dessert topped the meal off. I live in NYC during the week and am delighted that Fresh Salt set a high bar for us in the lower Connecticut River."

"It was our first time dining here as we live a fair distance. The food was outstanding. Our service was excellent (thank you Michael for being very helpful and attentive). And it was a very pleasant (and classy) surprise that Chef Cortesi came out to speak with customers. He was delightfully friendly and warm and shared wonderfully interesting tidbits about his cooking and the menu. This also included saying that we are welcome to contact him a few days in advance to let him know if we have special requests as he is happy to prepare those. We found this to be incredibly charming and quite frankly, a big wow. It really topped off what was a great dinner. And the place is really gorgeous. Thank you for everything!"

"My husband and I went out for dinner for our 30th Anniversary. We've been to Fresh Salt a few times in the past and remembered how wonderful the food was. The waitstaff was fantastic! They went above and beyond to make us feel special. Everyone wished us a Happy Anniversary. The atmosphere is very romantic, with the fire blazing and the lights on the sound sparkling . My husband LOVED everything about his meal of Calamari, Rack of Lamb and really enjoyed his after dinner drink, Cafe Royal. I had the New England Clam Chowder (a little sandy), Harvest Salad, which was wonderful, Osso Bucco- was tender, but lacking a "Wow" flavor. For dessert, we shared Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Salted Caramel Gelato . I, again, thought it lacked a bit of something.
I think I need to add that I'm not a picky eater, I was hoping for something amazing and I didn't get it. Not the fault of anyone. Just my opinion. Would I recommend Fresh Salt to a friend? Sure! It's beautiful, the staff is wonderful and the food is good.
~As a side note, My husband said that the he would have enjoyed a scotch for his after dinner drink, but it was way over priced and opted for the Cafe Royal and wasn't disappointed."

"We had a lovely lunch at about 2:00pm on a Saturday. The restaurant was quiet since it was the end of the lunch service. We sat at a round table in the corner with a nice view of the marina outside. All our meals were excellent. The crab cake was delicious as was the New England clam chowder. We got the sampler dessert which was a great end to the meal.
I would highly recommend this for any occasion. Very nice for couples or a family"

"I have now eaten at Fresh Salt for dinner twice, for breakfast once and for brunch twice. The food is fresh and inventive. The service is terrific - friendly and welcoming. A beautiful location and view is the icing on the cake."
